Life is Good

I was looking back over my blog & it occurred to me that people reading may find my posts depressing or negative. The may wonder if I am just a cranky person. The answer is a resounding “NO!” In reality I am a fairly cheerful, happy person. I am not one of those people walking around with a huge grin on my face, but I am, for the most part a happy person. When I give myself a break & actually think about it – I have a great life:
· Wonderful, supportive husband
· A job with great benefits
· 2 adorable cats (and Beagle)
· A nice home with an awesome kitchen that my husband built for me
· Great encouraging & supportive family & friends
· Only 40 more credit hours of school & I will have a degree!
· New job prospects

· This amazing ‘family’ of d-bloggers for diabetes support & encouragement
· A ton of hard life lessons under my belt that I have learned from
· Choices

And most of all I have hope for a better future. I’ve hit a bad patch as of late but things will get better, I just know it.

As I commented over at Scott’s blog, I may actually try to Eat Well, Exercise & Pay Attention to My Diabetes for a whole week & see if I feel better (less depressed, lethargic & head-achey). We'll see!

I don't find your blog or posts depressing or negative and I don't think you're a cranky person.

Blogs are a perfect place to let things out and get them off your chest. We all have frustrations, and it's only natural to express them.

I would not want to read your blog if it was all sugarcoated half-truths. I say, let it be what it be! Knowhatimean?

I tried another new thing today. It was a store bought frozen bean, cheese & rice burrito. I didn't like it to much. Wanna know why? This is so silly - but I found some little chunks of green somethings in it, and didn't like them. I also didn't like the seasoning of it. BUT - I tried it, and would make my own at home (eliminating the yucky stuff..).

I'm worse than a little kid when it comes to eating. :-)

I agree with Scott. Let it all out! I feel the same way sometimes but WE ALL DO and your blog is the perfect place to express that!
